Every entry in the $20/$20 Challenge brings something different to the table. This week my jaw dropped to the ground when I saw Darlene’s canning stockpile. It. Is. Awesome. Check out Darlene’s story:
What we don’t can, we freeze. We have one freezer for fruits and veggies, and one for meat. The meat freezer is a little thin this year, only one deer, two salmon and some chicken. And lots of chanterelle mushrooms we found while hunting.
I actually heard someone at the grocery store today say that they didn’t know how they were going to make it until the end of the month with what money they had left for groceries. It made me very thankful for our bounty and for my grandmother who taught me how to preserve it.
